A few years ago I was asked to design and direct the animation on a TV ad for a friend in my home town. There was no real budget to speak of... so I kept everything simple and direct. I also wanted to keep things modular, so elements could be plugged into different live-action ads.
Above: Some rough designs of the "blocks" in the ad.

Above: A board with rough timing.
It wasn't clear how long the animated segments should be. So I only timed out the animation roughly, designing frames that could be held in editing to cover whatever dialogue there might be. 

Dallas International Film Festival Interview

"Escape of the Gingerbread Man!!!" is still running the festival circuit, and was recently invited to screen at the 2013 Dallas International Film Festival

I had a chance to chit-chat about the film, and about story in general with Chad Jones. You can read the interview HERE

For those that haven't seen the film, an online version can be seen HERE .

To "The Monk Studio," "The Animation Workshop" and everyone who helped bring Ginger to life... thank you!
